On Saturday, 17th November we welcomed former pupils, West-End pianist Louise Hunt (Wells , academy principal James Howarth and award-winning video director David Wilson to Cedars Hall to receive their Foundation Fellowship Awards.
The fellows were supported by family, friends, former classmates and staff, including former Head, John Baxter and former Deputy Head Charles Cain who, together with Wells' Head of Art and Graphics Jan Tapner and Head of Percussion Jayne Obradovic, gave wonderful citations about each of the fellows, remarking on their many accomplishments and achievements whilst at Wells and in their careers to date.
For short biographies on each of our Fellows, download a copy of our event programme here. (insert link to programme)
It was wonderful too to host the awards ceremony, a drinks reception and fabulous first dinner in Cedars Hall. Our thanks to everyone who attended and offered their support.
